  2. madaline

    where did it go?

  3. kayleighcheryl

    +5

  4. in the second tab i found that it sounded better to add a 5 on the a string after the seven on the e

  5. Amateur Paul

    Could anyone explain how I read the intro tab? Got my uke as a gift for my birthday last week, so I’m just trying to find my feet. Thanks

  6. I find -2 easier.

    Thank you for this wonderful site!

  7. emilyrosehines

    instead of playing on the third tab at the last part, i just play it on the fourth. so its all the same except the last chord shape is up one fret

  8. New Uke Dude

    I play it like this

    xA|—5-5-5-5———————————|
    xE|–7-7-7-7—5-5-5–5-5–5-5–7-7-7——–|
    xC|———–6-6-6–2-2-/6-6–7-7-7———-|
    xG|——————————————|

  9. Possibly in the intro tab, try this:
    xA|——————–——-7—————————|
    xE|—–9—-9—–9——-9——-9——–9——9——9—–|
    xC|–9—-9—–9————–6——–6——-6—–6———|
    xG|————————————————————-|

  10. D0Msmagic

    In the tab section:
    xA|——————–7—————————————-|
    xE|—–9—-9—–9——-9——-3——–3——3——3—–|
    xC|–9—-9—–9————–3——–3——-3—–3———|
    xG|————————————————————-|

    The bit with the 3s sounds completely wrong. Any idea what it should be?
